OK just caught up on the last couple of pages here and see John has made a new offer for Miles, I think it is very generous and think anyone who doesn't is heartless.
I think it's clear from the posts that everyone wants to see that Miles gets the full amount and I agree he should. I can't imagine what it must be like to be homeless, although that could change in the next couple of months. Miles we all know the help you give here is invaluable and we all want to help you on the road to getting yourself back into a secure situation. Good luck.
Is Microsoft hinting about coming RTM before GA:
From Windows 10: Preparing to Upgrade One Billion Devices | Blogging WindowsSoon, we will give a build of Windows 10 to our OEM partners so they can start imaging new devices with Windows 10. The new devices our partners are working on are very exciting, I canít wait to hear your feedback as you get a chance to use them.
Soon after, we will distribute a build of Windows 10 to retailers all over the world, so they can assist their customers with upgrades of newly purchased devices that were originally imaged with Windows 8.1. Look for this sticker for assurance that our OEM partners have proactively tested a device for compatibility with Windows 10.
I'd assume they will do it at some point during WPC2015.
I thought so, too, when the speculation about possible RTM on 12th of July started. It's a Sunday but it is also the starting day of WPC2015. Would fit well, releasing the RTM then and there.
